Not really
It's a commonly hit area.

It really is weird though the bruise looks exactly the same each time ... I hit the same spot on the same thing and the bruise never looks the exact same ...

I would get that checked out. You might want to have blood work done. That bruise looks vicious.

Well it is a commonly hit area so not that strange but if something is telling you something is wrong bring it up to her DR.

It does and it's unlike her other ones and it comes back in the same spot with no trauma that I have seen

Does she lean on that elbow while sitting at a particular table, at home or somewhere she goes regularly? As other posters have said, it's worth having bloodwork done if she bruises that easily.

I have an appointment for tomorrow I just hate taking her in for bruising the first time I did they called CPS on me , it was terribly embarrassing.

Not at home , but I have made her preschool aware so they can keep an eye on it too.
